I picked up a stock GT wing for my '88 Notch and was wondering if there are any tips regarding installation?

You will need to relocate the rear studs on the wing stands, to the forward position. There are circle areas under the decklid, these are the areas where the holes are to be drilled. Now, they are not exact, so maybe someone with some measurements can chime in.

Also, your decklid will no longer stay up. You can try adjusting the decklid springs (try a search of the forum for instructions), or you can install a strut kit (again, search is your friend)

I am not sure I know what you mean by relocating the studs on the wingstand. They seem fixed. As for the circles, they appear to be too close together. I measured the studs on the stands and they are about 74cm apart. The circles appear to be about 50cm.

86-88 OEM spoilers will have 3 bolt holes in the stands. Move the rear studs in the stands to match the decklid. The reason is because the fastback decklid uses a different rear stud location on the stand vs the notchback.

If you don't have 3 holes, only 2, then your spoiler (if it is OEM) was made for a notchback (84-85) and will bolt correctly.

I see what you are talking about now. I also found the circles in the trunk at the 74cm that will match up with the studs on the risers. Only one set though, for the rear studs. Guess I'll have to measure for the front ones.
